AUREUS, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

April 30, 2021

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

Aureus Incorporated (the “Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada on April 19, 2013. The Company was organized to develop and explore mineral properties in the state of Nevada. The Company is currently in active status in the state of Nevada.

 

We are a food brand development company that builds and represents popular food concepts throughout the United States and international markets. Management is highly experienced at business integration and re-branding potential. With little territory available for the older brands, we intend to bring to our customers fresh innovative brands that have great potential. All of our brands will be unique in nature as we focus on niche markets that are still in need of development.

 

We operate two lines of business. Through our subsidiary, YIC Acquisitions Corp. (“YICA”), we acquired the assets of Yuengling’s Ice Cream in June 2019. YICA produces and sells high-quality ice cream without artificial colors, flavoring, or preservatives and no added hormones. In September 2020, we entered into the micro market segment and launched our second business line, Aureus Micro Markets (“AMM”). Closely tied to the vending machine industry, Micro Markets look and feel like modern convenience stores while functioning with the ease and efficiency of vending foodservice and refreshment services. They provide an improved customer experience and greater product variety, with a proven track record of increasing sales at vending locations while keeping labor costs down and improving operating efficiencies. Micro markets are a hybrid form of vending, food service, coffee service, and convenience stores that provide an improved customer experience, exponentially greater product variety, and increased sales within a single location while keeping labor costs down and improving operational efficiencies. The expanded product variety, open flow, and cashless payment options mean that consumers spend less time in line fumbling with cash/change, can purchase multiple items with one transaction, and buy more items per transaction than with cash transactions.

 

NOTE 2 – SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of presentation

The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring items, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair statement of the results of operations for the periods shown and are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending October 31, 2021. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2020.

 

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

We maintain our cash in bank deposit accounts, the balances of which at times may exceed federally insured limits. We continually monitor our banking relationships and consequently have not experienced any losses in our accounts. We believe we are not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash.

 

Restricted Cash

The Company has an obligation to transfer $50,000 to Mid Penn Bank as security pursuant to the Agreement of Sale and Security Agreement with Mid Penn Bank and Yuengling Ice Cream Corp, by September 30, 2021. If the funds are not transferred by September 30, 2021, the Bank has option to call the loan and to require the Company to pay any attorney’s fees incurred.

 

 

 

  5  

 

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $3,224,111, had a net loss of $275,790, and net cash used in operating activities of $219,138 for the six months ended April 30, 2021. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock and/or debt financing is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of the Company’s contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. These conditions and the ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these aforementioned uncertainties.

 

NOTE 4 - PROPERTY & EQUIPMENT

 

Property and Equipment are first recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the various classes of assets as follows between three and five years.

 

Long lived assets, including property and equipment, to be held and used by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of the assets may not be recoverable. Impairment losses are recognized if expected future cash flows of the related assets are less than their carrying values. Measurement of an impairment loss is based on the fair value of the asset. Long-lived assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell.

 

Maintenance and repair expenses, as incurred, are charged to expense. Betterments and renewals are capitalized in plant and equipment accounts. Cost and accumulated depreciation applicable to items replaced or retired are eliminated from the related accounts with any gain or loss on the disposition included as income.

 

Property and equipment stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation consisted of the following:

 

    April 30,
2021
    October 31,
2020
 
Automobile   $     $  
Property and equipment     30,300       30,300  
Less: accumulated depreciation            
Property and equipment, net   $ 30,300     $ 30,300  

 

Depreciation Expense

Depreciation expense for the six months ended April 30, 2021 and fiscal year ended October 31, 2020 was $0 and $0, respectively. As of April 30, 2021, the Company’s fixed asset have not yet been placed in service. Depreciation will begin on the date the assets are placed into service.

Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in or suggested by such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this quarterly report to conform forward-looking statements to actual results. Important factors on which such statements are based are assumptions concerning uncertainties, including but not limited to, uncertainties associated with the following:

· Our failure to earn revenues or profits;

 

· Inadequate capital to continue business;

 

· Volatility or decline of our stock price;

 

· Potential fluctuation in quarterly results;

 

· Rapid and significant changes in markets;

 

· Litigation with or legal claims and allegations by outside parties; and

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto which are included in this quarterly report. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ substantially from those anticipated in any forward-looking statements included in this discussion as a result of various factors.

 

Overview

 

Aureus, Inc. (“Aureus,” “ARSN,” “we,” “us,” or the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on April 19, 2013. Our offices are located at One Glenlake Parkway #650, Atlanta, GA 30328. Our telephone number is (404) 885-6045, and our email address is aureus.now@gmail.com. Our website is www.aureusnow.com. We do not incorporate the information on or accessible through our website into this Registration Statement, and you should not consider any information on, or that can be accessed through, our website a part of this Registration Statement.

 

We are a food brand development company that builds and represents popular food concepts throughout the United States and international markets. Management is highly experienced at business integration and re-branding potential. With little territory available for the older brands, we intend to bring fresh, innovative brands with great potential. Our brands will be unique as we focus on niche markets that are still in need of development.

We operate two lines of business. Through our subsidiary, YIC Acquisitions Corp. (“YICA”), we acquired the assets of Yuengling’s Ice Cream (“YIC” or “Yuengling’s”) in June 2019. Yuengling’s sells high-quality ice cream without artificial colors, flavoring, or preservatives and no added hormones. Yuengling’s is currently sold in select retailers and convenience stores in eastern Pennsylvania. In September 2020, we entered into the micro-market segment and launched our second business line, Aureus Micro-Markets (“AMM”). Closely tied to the vending machine industry, micro-markets look and feel like modern convenience stores while functioning with the ease and efficiency of vending food service and refreshment services. They provide an improved customer experience and greater product variety, with a proven track record of increasing sales at vending locations while keeping labor costs down and improving operating efficiencies. Micro-markets are a hybrid form of vending, food service, coffee service, and convenience stores that provide an improved customer experience, exponentially greater product variety, and increased sales within a single location while keeping labor costs down and improving operational efficiencies. The expanded product variety, open flow, and cashless payment options mean that consumers spend less time in line fumbling with cash/change, can purchase multiple items with one transaction, and buy more items per transaction than with cash transactions.

Going Concern

 

As of April 30, 2021, there is substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going concern as we have not generated sufficient cash flow to fund our operations.

 

We have suffered recurring losses from operations and have not yet generated any revenue. As a result of these and other factors, our independent auditor has expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our future success and viability, therefore, are dependent upon our ability to generate capital financing. The failure to generate sufficient revenues or raise additional capital may have a material and adverse effect upon us and our shareholders.

 

Management’s plans with regard to these matters encompass the following actions: (i) obtaining funding from new investors to alleviate our working capital deficiency, and (ii) implementing our plan of operation to generate sales. Our continued existence is dependent upon our ability to resolve our liquidity problems and increase profitability in our business operations. However, the outcome of management’s plans cannot be ascertained with any degree of certainty. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these risks and uncertainties.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Note 2 to the Financial Statements describes the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Financial Statements. Estimates are used for, but not limited to, contingencies and taxes.  Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The following critical accounting policies are impacted significantly by judgments, assumptions, and estimates used in the preparation of the Financial Statements.

 

We are subject to various loss contingencies arising in the ordinary course of business.  We consider the likelihood of loss or impairment of an asset or the incurrence of a liability, as well as our ability to reasonably estimate the amount of loss in determining loss contingencies.  An estimated loss contingency is accrued when management concludes that it is probable that an asset has been impaired, or a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated.  We regularly evaluate current information available to us to determine whether such accruals should be adjusted.

 

We recognize deferred tax assets (future tax benefits) and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the book carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.  The deferred tax assets and liabilities represent the expected future tax return consequences of those differences, which are expected to be either deductible or taxable when the assets and liabilities are recovered or settled.  Future tax benefits have been fully offset by a 100% valuation allowance as management is unable to determine that it is more likely than not that this deferred tax asset will be realized.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We have reviewed other recently issued accounting pronouncements and plan to adopt those that are applicable to us. We do not expect the adoption of any other pronouncements to have an impact on our results of operations or financial position.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and, as such, are not required to provide the information under this Item.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Each of our principal executive and principal financial officer has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a - 15(e) and 15d - 15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. Based on their evaluation, each such person concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of April 30, 2021 due to a lack of segregation of duties and the absence of an independent audit committee.

 

In designing and evaluating disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute assurance of achieving the desired objectives. Also, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting.

 

Our management has evaluated whether any change in our internal control over financial reporting occurred during the last fiscal quarter. Based on that evaluation, management concluded that there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting during the relevant period that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
